The March 5th IndyTalks session at the Big Car Service Center was a great opportunity for members of the community to explore how under-served and marginalized populations in Indianapolis can get access to mental health services. The Ethnic Self Help Charter plans to use the conversation as a springboard to further organization and action.

Butler professor of composition Frank Felice will perform prog-rock with a group of his musical friends Tuesday, February 25. It promises to be a fascinating concert. So popular, in fact, it has been moved from the intimate Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall to the larger Schrott Center for the Arts. It's free, get there early! Frank generously shared the thinking behind the concert, how it fits with the new music scene in Indy, and the meaning of "consonant adiatonicism."

If you are looking for a truly unique theatre experience, go to Butler the evening of Friday February 28. You can see a performance of "Terminal," one of the most influential avant-garde plays of the 1960s. Susan Yankowitz will be at Butler for a talk-back after the performance. What a treat, getting the playwright to talk about an original recasting of a work that was first performed nearly four decades ago.
